Solution: Joel is laying pipe for a sprinkler system before he plants his lawn. The lawn is a rectangle, 15 feet long and 8 feet wide. He needs to lay a piece of pipe that will run along the diagonal of the lawn. It will divide the area of the lawn into two right triangles. Using Pythagoras' theorem, (15 x 15) + (8 x 8) = the square on the hypotenuse (the diagonal). 225 + 64 = 289. The square root of 289 is 17. (17 x 17 = 289).
